The Zéphyr Junior class is recommended for young dancers aged 11 years and older who have three to four years of experience in Canadian-French dance. It is designed for those who have already developed a solid foundation in gigue and traditional formations. According to the Canadian-French dance program developed by La Girandole (2003), Zéphyr Junior is at Level 4 and covers the four aspects of folk dance: dance, gigue, music, and culture. In addition to studying the traditional aspects of folk dance, Zéphyr Junior dancers will also be introduced to contemporary dance concepts, preparing them for potential advancement to the Zéphyr senior class in the future. Zéphyr Junior classes are part of the full-season program, which includes two shows: the Christmas show and the annual show. This year, the Zéphyr Junior class will be paired with the Alouettes class to ensure a better level-based teaching approach.
